The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

Busted On Benghazi – The White House Caught In Their Lies

Here’s the Nonsense:  The White House has given us clear and accurate information on the 9/11 attack in Benghazi from day one.  We can trust them to share with the American people an accurate and timely account of the details.

Here’s the Horse Sense:  The White House is living up to their false claim of transparency and the Benghazi 9/11 attack is their latest cover up.  The American people need to demand the truth and recognize that this is an example of how untrustworthy President Obama really is.

In a breaking story about the Benghazi attacks, Breitbart reports that the White House was informed the Benghazi attack was a result of terrorism just over 2 hours after the attack.  This destroys the continuing claim by Obama, Biden, and the entire administration that terrorism, as the source of the attack, was unknown for some time.  Once again, we hear lies from this president and his staff.  Amazing since he promised to have the most transparent administration in history (and in no way has he fulfilled that promise) and also because he’s now on the campaign trail claiming that this election comes down to trust.  He’s just proven again that he cannot be trusted.
According to Breitbart:

The new revelations come in the form of an email sent by the State Department Operations Center to the White House, the Pentagon, the FBI and unspecified elements of the intelligence community. The email was sent at 6:07 p.m. EDT, which was 12:07 a.m. Benghazi time. The attack in Benghazi had started just over two hours earlier, at 3:50 p.m. Washington time.
Over and over again the administration tried to tie the attack to a YouTube video that was claimed to have insulted Muslims.  For example, just looking at September 14th, three days after the attack, the White House press secretary brought up the video over a dozen times.  The media asked him if he was tying the video to the attack in Benghazi and he said:  “We have no evidence at this time to suggest otherwise, that there was a pre-planned or ulterior instigation behind the unrest.”  The shameless arrogance of this White House to not only keep the truth from the American people, but to try to falsely blame someone else for the disaster is unconscionable.

As Breitbart so effectively asked as they closed their article: “Is it only a coincidence that the White House’s favored explaination is by far the less politically explosive of the two?”
When Americans are voting in two weeks they need to remember just how untrustworthy this president has proven himself to be.
